I guess you can only be vacuous for so long before side-effects ensue.

Maybe a bit of a shock to the system after being on holiday and coming back to being prime minister.

The first news report I read this morning was this: "Prime Minister John Key says he did not lose any sleep after seeing a draft report into his Government's deal with SkyCity to build a convention centre."

Then I saw your post and read this: "Plummer [restaurant manager] said she thought that Key looked unwell and commented to a colleague that he looked tired and doubted he would make it through dinner. ''He looked extremely tired and he was perspiring,'' Plummer said. After he had finished his meal she saw him get up from his seat and his legs buckle."

Instant conspiracy theory!!!

Well I hope it's nothing serious and that he makes a full recovery.

Key probably got the news he'd mistakenly reappointed education minister, Hekia Parata ?

:D
